Processes and Files
UNIX is built upon processes and files. A process is basically an executing program. All the work performed by a UNIX system is carried out by processes.
All the long term information stored on a UNIX system is stored in files. Every file on a UNIX system has a number of attributes that serve different purposes.
There are a collection of commands that allow users and SA’s to to manipulate files and processes.
Whenever you run a program, a process is created. The UNIX command line that you use to enter the commands is actually another program/command called the shell.
To execute a command, that command has to be in one of the directories in your search path.
